Okay, so where's the love for this franchise? Yeah, I'll admit, I'm not a Celtics fan yet I own a Paul Pierce jersey, but hey... anytime you have Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett on the same team, I'll watch.

First question... is this team overrated?

:dontknow: Who knows?. It's the east we're talking about. If they were playing in the west, it would be easier to know if they're for real or not.

Alright. What about this team taking the offer from Minny instead of the Dubs or Bulls or whomever else made their case for KG? That was pretty sad. I mean yeah, Ainge and McHale go way back, but still.

What about the Pacers taking over Murph and Dun's contracts for Jackson and Al Harrington?. Mullin and Bird also go way back...

Sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts. I'm kinda happy they passed our offer for Boston's. I'd rather have a decade of Monta than 4 years of KG.

We will certainly find out in the Playoffs, if they do get through the East, I do not think they would beat San Antonio, LA, New Orleans, Houston or Dallas though.

There gonna be bad in the playoffs because rivers is gonna play a 12 man rotation which makes no sense.
Basketball would be depressing without the warriors

They only have 2 years to be a good team...after that, they need to rebuild the team again...KG,R.Allen are old already...
Different with W's...we have monta,wright,beans,marco(hopefully),Azubuike...to be good/great players in the league...

Monta probably will turn to be like A.I
Wright......maybe like Chris bosh mixed with Kareem A.J (hook shot)
Marco.....wish he can be Manu or rick Barry :mrgreen:
Beans.....unique C with good block and soft hands ability.
Azu....C.Barkley ...hehehe i hate to mentioned about him....but i azu looks like him ..short and good jumper

I'll give them four. Those guys are young enough to still play at a big level for four years (including this one).
